What Certified Building Solutions performs the role of "certifier" under the Building Act 2004 which was introduced by the ACT Government. This involves assessment of projects against Building Code of Australia & building regulations, inspection of work during construction to ensure compliance and, on completion of the work, the recommendation for the issue of a certificate of occupancy or use.
For single residential building projects, it also includes verifying whether the project is exempt from Development Approval.
There are specific responsibilities that a "certifier" under the Building Act 2004 must satisfy. CBS has the skills and experience to satisfy those requirements while also providing efficient, competitive and high quality service to our clients.
We can provide information and/or advice on all aspects of the building process including such areas as:
- Disability access
- Fire safety
- Difficult sites including landslip, high wind loadings, flood zones, bushfire prone areas
- Environmentally-sensitive areas
- Special use buildings
To ensure a continuing high level of quality service, all our professional staff participate in a program of continuous professional development.
